Cosmic Anomaly
Capital Ship Testing Ground. Rigging Experiment Data has been newly added to Loot Crates.
Unknown Hidden Rift. Added Advanced Lightweight Ship Blueprints, Exhumer Drones Blueprints, and Superheavy Logistic Drone Blueprints. Removed Supercarrier Component Chest and Heavy Fighter Blueprints.
Capital Ship-level rift sub-routes may have a chance to appear in random Low Sec regions (which contain no Supercapital Ship NPC enemies)
Capital Ship Quarry. Reduced the spawn rate by about 40% (replaced by Capital Ship Rally Point). Destroying a Rorqual has a small chance of obtaining an ORE Data Compiler from the wreck.
Etherium Reach. Increased the drop rates of Drone Component from destroying the Wasteseeker Striker Fleet by about 50%.
Wasteseeker Centrum. Loot Crates now have a small chance to drop Artillery Cover, Aerospace Tactics, Tactical Defense, and other new Implant Cores or Blueprints. Increased the drop rates of Done Component from enemies by about 10%.
When using the "Expedition" Spatial Rift Filament, if the number of fleet members exceeds the maximum number supported by the Filament, it will become unusable, and the fleet will not be able to register or jump.

Market & Trading
To promote Market Transaction, ensure standardized trading behavior, and minimize fraud and illegal transactions, the following adjustments have been implemented to the trading rules:
PLEX sales tax incentive is now active, with the tax rate temporarily reduced from 12% to 2%. This will be adjusted based on market conditions in the future.
Corporation Missions and Corporation Market no longer support gifting or selling Capital Ships.
Corporation Hangar adjustments: Members other than the Corporation’s Creator will be unable to store or retrieve Capital Ships if they have been in the Corporation for less than 30 days and unable to store or retrieve Supercapital Ships if they have been in the Corporation for less than 90 days.

Enhanced Mothership Command Module. Fuel consumption reduced from 12,000 to 4,000. When activated, Mothership Shield Resistance and Fighter Damage bonus increased from 10% to 15%.

Valuation updated based on the market transaction record.  
Reduced the Activation Time for Electronic Warfare modules on Lightweight Ships, increasing the speed of target switching after destroying an enemy.
Optimized the performance of Combat Timers and Weapon Timers, reducing the trigger frequency. Now, after each timer refresh, there will be no further refreshes for 25-30 seconds.
Optimized the notification when triggering market price range limits.
Added Corporation Tech filter to Corporation Wallet log interface.

Fixed an issue where Sentry Drones could attack targets outside of their Drone Control Range.
Fixed a rare issue where the wallet balance could display gibberish.
Fixed an issue where some High Slot modules on Force Auxiliaries had incorrect icon orientations.
